Ancestral Goa is built around the
legend of Big Foot which has endured over the centuries.
The local legend goes that, a wealthy landowner by the name
of Mahadar blessed with a deep sense of duty and unending
goodness, helped the local poor. Greedy neighbours wishing
to take advantage of his naiveté kept on asking him
for help till one day fleeced all his possessions and destitute
with the loss of his wife, he was left alone.
The Gods pleased with his devotion granted him immortality
only if he paid penance by standing on one foot atop a rock.
This done Mahadar was taken to heaven whereupon, the footprint
he left behind promised luck to whosoever stood on it with
a heart free from greed and malice.
The Dance Floor
The Big Foot is Goa's biggest designer
dance floor shaped like a giant foot and has been created
for the express purpose of being a versatile venue for all
types of functions and entertainment events like weddings,
anniversaries, seminars, dances etc.
A curved entrance standing guarded over by two vividly painted
soldiers leads onto a grassy and dewy carpet of greenery.
Surrounded by glorious and vibrant bouganvillae, amply branched,
shaded trees provide an exotic foreground for the pebbled,
seahorse studded entryway to the floor.
The natural carpet of grass around the Big Foot dance floor
is trimmed and maintains a smart look all through the year.
The five toes are big enough to accommodate bands and other
entertainers. This place provides a breath-taking view of
the lush green surroundings overlooking the vast hill range
of South Goa. A sparkling illuminated fountain with water
cascading over the shells and rocks enhances the beauty of
the dance floor.
An enclosed buffet area, bar and clean and ample public facilities
add to an aura of completeness, If desired, in house catering,
music bands on contact and even lighting and decoration orders
Complete and composite on its own, this floor in the daytime
offers a fantastic view of the neighbouring villages and the
meandering silver ribbon of the Zuari river. At night, when
lit up with faery lights and neon focuses the "Big Foot"
impresses one as " Paradise revisted "!
The Big Foot dance floor, measures 40 mts. by 18 mts. and
a comfortable number of 2,500 people can be accomodated in
the 9,000 sq. meter area. The spacious and well planned parking
area is well lit as is the tarred road that leads up to the
dance floor from the main road.
